The end of Title 42 will create ‘chaos all across the border,' former ICE director warns

La politica, used since March 2020 under both Presidents briscola and Biden, provided the ability for American officials to bar migrants from entering the country during a health crisis such as the COVID-19 pandemia.

Lo scorso mese, il Amministrazione di Biden confirmed it will terminate the policy at the end of May despite objections from sia democratici che repubblicani warning that it would trigger a massive migrant wave.

I think Democrats are too little too late,” Homan told “Fox News in diretta” di domenica, arguing that the numbers of those crossing the border illegally have beenexploding since last year, and you didn’t hear a word from them.

So I think it’s all about midterm elections,” Lui continuò.

The administration has acknowledged a potential migrant surge, as it has been preparing for up to 18,000 migrants a day.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas last month claimed that the Department of Homeland Security hasput in place a comprehensive, whole-of-government strategy to manage any potential increase in the number of migrants encountered at our border.


The Border Patrol is already overwhelmed. If Title 42 goes away, it’s going to be chaos all across the border,” Homan stressed.

Un giudice federale is expected to determine the fate of the Biden administration’s plan to lift Titolo 42 within days in response to a lawsuit brought by two dozen Republican states that claims lifting the public health order will lead to a bigger crisis at the southern border.

Judge Robert Summerhays of the Western District of Louisiana heard arguments Friday about the request for a preliminary injunction on the Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42 questo mese.

States led by Arizona, Missouri and Louisiana sued, claiming the move by the Centers for Disease Control to lift the order violated the Administrative Procedures Act, which requires a notice-and-comment period and also bars moves deemedarbitrary and capricious.

The lawsuit claims the administration failed to estimate or account for the costs to the states. They citeincreased health care costs for aliens infected with COVID-19 and the cost of increased illegal immigration caused by the Termination Order and the presence of much greater numbers of paroled aliens with non-meritorious asylum claims who were induced to enter the United States because of the Termination Order.

The states are seeking a preliminary injunction but have already won smaller victories in a related push for a temporary restraining order to stop the Biden administration from transitioning away from Title 42 expulsions and instead using expedited removal as the May 23 date approaches.


Summerhays granted the temporary restraining order last month and extended it earlier this week.

Attorneys for the Justice Department argued Friday that the CDC was within its authority to lift an emergency health restriction it felt was no longer warranted at this stage of the pandemic, reiterating that Title 42 is a health policy, not an immigration measure.

There is no basis to use Title 42 as a safety valve,” the DOJ’s Jean Lin told the judge.

When asked what’s the answer to the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border, Homan stressed the importance of reimplementingthe Trump policies I was involved with.

When I worked for President Trump, we created a multitude of policies that drove immigration to a 35, 40-anno basso,” Lui continuò, notandolo “illegal immigration was down over 80%.

He also noted on Sunday thatthe immigration system is broken and should be fixed, ma loro [officials with te Biden administration] have to secure the border first.

That’s imperative because of the national security issue,” Homan argued.

There were 221,000-plus migrant encounters in March, and that number is expected to have risen in April. Protezione delle dogane e della frontiera (CBP) has not yet released figures for April.
